Why Berlin is refusing to supply Kyiv with Leopard tanks


Germany supplies Ukraine with weapons, but they are mainly defensive in nature and are not directed against Russian territory. About this in an interview with the newspaper LOOK said an employee of the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry, military expert Vadim Kozyulin.


In Germany, it is legally prohibited to send combat machinery in areas of military conflict. At the same time, the Germans are supplying the Armed Forces with certain types of weapons, thus reducing the regulation of their military supplies. At the same time, Berlin focuses on the defensive nature of the supplied weapons.

The Germans are trying to comply with certain principles. In their opinion, they help Ukraine defend itself, not attack. And since tanks are still offensive weapons, they made such a decision

Kozyulin noted.

In particular, the decision of the German side and the allies of Germany not to send heavy tanks to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine was announced the day before during a speech in Oldenburg by the leader of the SPD party Lars Klingbeil.

Western countries rightly fear that Ukraine can use the weapons sent to further escalate the conflict. Meanwhile, Kyiv has long been talking about the need to supply Leopard tanks and Marder armored personnel carriers.

    The Turks in Syria sent the Leopards of the Kurds to have a nightmare. But the Kurds inflicted an unpleasant defeat on them. All Leopards instantly lost their beautiful spotted coloration and animal grin, turning into a pile of burning iron. And the Russian army, these are not Kurds with grenade launchers ... Therefore, they will burn much more sparklingly. that is why the Germans do not want to suffer such reputational damage again.

    It's time for the TU-95 strategic bombers to fly near the borders with Ukraine and launch MASSIVE missile strikes on the Ukronazi armed formations in order to effectively stop the pumping of weapons to the Ukronazis. It is quite obvious that it is REQUIRED to VISUALLY EVERYONE that any weapons supplied to the Ukronazis will be immediately destroyed. Such a massive, methodical destruction of Ukronazi troops equipped with Sshanat equipment will contribute to the emergence of sanity in all Sshanat countries.
